  1. When I flew to visit family over Xmas I wore a mask throughout the airport and flight unless I was eating/drinking. It's habit for me now, but also one of my aunts works in a neonatal facility and I wanted to avoid picking up anything as much as possible! Out of habit I pretty much always mask inside, and sometimes outside if it's cold! The exception is if I'm with other people especially somewhere loud because I cannot always hear people through or project my voice through masks

  2. From those I choose Moki - I like two syllable pet names! But my first thought was Teddy, Toastie, or (marsh)mallow!

  3. yep, they need to quit with this "storm of a generation" business.

  4. My friend's flight got cancelled due to "weather" (i thought it was clear today?) and I'm now taking her to the airport for a 7:30 am tomorrow morning. Anyone have any idea what it's like early in the morning? Should we get there around 5 am or something? These 3 hour wait times are concerning :/

  5. I'd recommend around 5:30 esp if checking bags. Definitely use spot saver (it opens at 5am). If she's early - time to get a coffee/hot drink

  6. Got it, thanks! She's not checking bags so hopefully that should be a bit easier.

  7. Feel free to ignore me then! Spot saver is (as far as I can tell) economy precheck so she should be good!

  8. I'm not sure unfortunately, passing info on from a coworker

  9. As a Dutchy, driving a car and turning right on a red light. That messed with my head. If you do that here you are gonna hit at least 5 cyclists.

  10. It's a stupid law and I will take that to my grave. "A green man? And lots of pedestrians waiting to cross? But I, a driver, want to go haring around the corner to wait at the next red light, who cares about the pedestrians I might toss like I'm out bowling"

  11. You supposed to stop before turning on the red. If there's any pedestrians, you don't go.

  12. Bold of you to assume drivers give a single shit about rules like that. Source: experience.

  13. For anyone still browsing.... "Doing the Right Thing" by Daughter. Tbf Daughter's entire back catalogue could be on this list but Doing the Right Thing is just. So painful.

  14. What’s your opinion on the “out of televisions” line? Soooo many people hate it.

  15. Really?? I don't have especially strong feelings on that line in particular tbh

  16. I believe he was discussed in one of the conscious life expo episodes? That or the alien conferences.

  17. Yeah I don't understand this thread, we should be saying "Phew the meteor missed" not "Told you there was no danger."

  18. With a side of "haha the danger that was threatened ended up not being a danger! For now....."

  19. Oh to be a seal doing a banana pose at Lincoln Park of a morn

  20. I mean it's worth going to one time. Assuming you live in a four-hour radius, you don't even need to stay in a hotel. Just drive around the strip and explore the main hotels like Luxor, Caesar's Palace, Belagio, and a few others before going home.

  21. As long as you're an adult. I spent one night there as a 16 year old which is the worst age. Too old to be awed by the Vegas-ness but too young to have any fun.

  22. And when their "proof" obtained by horrendously expensive instruments is debunked they claim "oh no the instrument was broken"

  23. Multiple extended family members were fully confident that COVID/vaccine was a liberal hoax and no more dangerous than a little bout with the flu.

  24. A lot of my aunt's family are apparently like this. Last xmas one of her brothers planned to spend Christmas day with our extended family, so we various cousins (flying in from across the country) were being very careful and taking multiple tests as he's older and unvaccinated. In the days leading up to the 25th another member of her family was hospitalised and getting worse and worse. The brother and the hospitalised family member lived close together so it was likely the brother was also infected. Finally on the evening of the 24th he texted my aunt saying "in light of recent events I think it's best I stay home" which was true, but it took "my family member is dying as we speak" to convince him. Unfortunately I don't know what happened after that - hopefully he's staying as safe as he can. That was my first interaction with a real COVID denier (city boy with liberal immediate family) and it honestly surprised me.

  25. I moved here because I was promised similar weather to the UK. Down with sun, up with rain!! If I wanted warmth I'd live somewhere else (being somewhat facetious here)

  26. When I've told people that Seattle was my dream city, I'd almost always hear back in the form of a warning about how gloomy it was with the constant rain and cloudy weather. And I'd always follow up with "Yes, that is one of the biggest reasons it's my dream city"

  27. Right!! Like if I wanted sun there's a lot of other places in the US that have it 🙄

  28. Kinda. Its just not well known. After a living with one I would be upset to not have it. I 100% of the time boil all my water in the kettle rather than a pot. Its like half the time or less.

  29. I'm fairly certain an electric kettle was the first thing I bought when I moved from the UK to the US. It's arguably the most important kitchen appliance imo.

  30. Hot drinks!! And as others have mentioned, preheating water for pasta etc. I also use it to get boiled water to clean reusable water bottles and stuff.

  31. A well-fitted N95/KN95 will definitely help. Cloth or surgical-style mask, not so much.

  32. Purely subjectively it helps me feel better than having nothing, and a fabric mask is what I always have to hand!

  33. I really do, although I understand the criticism. I used to re-listen to everything every time a new season came out and I listened through everything a few months ago. I like the atmosphere and the occasional real elements intertwined with fantasy. The production makes it really immersive and it's great when I'm doing a physical task.

  34. I did the same thing re relistening!! And I have fond memories of messaging the one friend I had who also listened my latest theories. Lots of "Tanis zombies!!!!" In that chatlog.

  35. Hot take: Tanis > Rabbits > The Black Tapes/The Last Movie. Tanis and TBT both suffer from "this got too big and now we have to make it a global conspiracy" syndrome but with Tanis it at least makes sense.

  36. As a nail biter of 24ish years... A male. How do I go about quitting 🙈 I would love advice I hate it. It's so embedded in my lifestyle it's unreal When someone says "it's stress related" etc I just get annoyed because I cannot possibly understand how stress makes me just destroy my entire hand/hands during an episode of something on netflix.

  37. Agreeing with the people who say find something else to fidget with - I'm trying to train myself into fidgeting with the hem of my shirt. Also if you don't already, moisturise your hands often, and keep your nails short so you don't bite them as often. I will now continue to not take my own advice 💀
